Council Must Get Busy With Financing of Thia
At last night's council meeting Alderman Pattullo impressed on the coun
cil the urgent need for the finance
committee's making early arrangements
for the financing of the Woodworth-
Lake water works scheme. He hoped
that there would be no difficulty occasioned in securing the necessary
advances to start the scheme speedily,
and proposed that the finance committee take up the matter fort ,with

From his place rose William Manson,
Bade farewell to Smith the Silent;
Bade farewell to all the council,
Spake persuading, spake he this wise:
"I am going 0, my people
On a long and distant journey,
Many days and many happenings,
Will have come and will have vanished,
Ere 1 come again to see you:
But the "Empire" and the "Journal"
They will tell you how to do it;
In their watch and ward 1 leave you,
Listen to their words of wisdom,
Listen to the truth they utter."
Southward, southward. William Manson
Sailed without Prince Rupert Harbor,
In the glory of the moonlight
Out into that sea of splendour.
Sailed away did Mister Manson,
And the children left their bobsleds,
Sang farewell 0, Mister Manson
Singing singly or together,
Shouted, Farewell Mister Manson!
Then, Pattullo the Financier:
"Farewell," said he, "William Manson,
Farewell, O my late op|K>nent,
Come not back again to labor,
Come not back again to Rupert,
Where the Vampire and the Journal
Tells us how we ought to do it."

Thus departed Mister Manson,
William Manson, Mayor of Rupert,
To thc regions of Victoria,
To the Island of Vancouver,
To the Halls of Legislation.
Left his tribe all broken hearted.
Left the Council all behind him,
Left them to their work and labor,
Fire and furnace, streets and water.
All demanding close attention:
But the Empire and the Journal
They will tell them how to do it:
They will read their words of wisdom.
Listen to the truths they utter.
Do the best they can without him.
Axe Swings in Civic Affairs���Economy is Alleged as
the Reason���After Seconding Motion Aid. Hilditch Makes Naive Request for Legal
By a motion carried in council hist
night the services of the present cily
solicitors are to lie dispensed with and
the council anti city clerk are to avail
themselves from time to time as circumstances require, of the services of
any of the legal firms in the cily no
particular firm being named or excluded
This motion to which Alderman
Pattullo alone was dissentient, was put
by Alderman Newton and seconded
by Alderman Hilditch in substitution
of a motion by Alderman Smith that
the expense of the legal department
of the city be reduced to $150 per
month including stenographer's salary
This amount Alderman Pattullo said
was too Utile. At least $.1000 per annum
he thought fair for the city solicitors'
fee���and 1(4000 not excessive.
Then Alderman Newton introduced
his amendment that the city solicitors'
services be dispensed with and the
advice of other firms be taken as required. This is an experiment to see
if the city could get alonR more cheaply
or not.
Agreeing with Alderman Newton on
the ground that thc present cily --ol-
icitors had repeatedly said that if the
amount paid them were cut down the
city   could   look   elsewhere   for   legal
Police Proceedings
There were two cases before Magistrate Carss at the police court this
morning. Bert Dowley was convicted
of frequenting a house of ill fame and
allowed to go on suspended sentence
on condition that he leaves town today.
L. W. Blood was accused of drunken
nesa and also with living on the proceeds
of immorality. The lirst charge was
proved and a fine of $5 was inflicted.
The second offence will be tried on

advice, Alderman Hilditch supported
the amendment.
Alderman Pattullo recommended the
advisability of the city's retaining
the services of a regular solicitor no
matter whom. It was explained by
Alderman Newton that bis idea was
that the Mayor and thr.e chairmen
of committees should decide what
solicitor should In- consulted. Alderman Newton's amendment was then
put as a new motion and carried as
stated, Alderman Puttullo voting against.
A very short timt thereafter Alderman Hilditch who had seconded the
motiun dis|*ensinc, with the services of
the city solicitors wanted a written
opinion from ihcm support inr the
city in the demolition of the condemned
Dunedin Block.
"Why, we have no city sol-citors!"
exclaimed Alderman Pattullo in some
surprise, but Alderman Hilditch seemed
still ignorant of the effect of the motion
he had just seconded.
Mayor Manson explained it to him
carefully, and he substituted ihe -ords
"a solicitor's written opinion" for "the
city solicitor's opinion."
"You se..." put in Alderman Pattullo
"it is sometimes quilt convenient to
have a retained city solicitor."
Alderman Hilditch did not dispute the
G. T. P. Track Plana Before Railway
Commission  Sent  Here
Mr. D'Arcy Tate has forwarded to
the city council the plans laid before
the Railway Commission relating to
the G. T. P. track round the waterfront
here, about which the matter of filling
up the bays is under protest.
Stories that Charles E. Peabody intends to return to the Alaska business
and is considering offers of capital to
organize a steamship business in opposition to the GuggenheimB have been
circulating among shipping men in
Seattle for some time and are not
Should Mr. Peabody, who was president of the Alaska Steamship Company until the Morgan-Guggenheim
syndicate took over that line, re-enter
the transportation business, he would
undoubtedly associate with him Frank
E. Burns, manager of the Inland Navi
gation Company and allied steamship
Both Mr. Burns and Mr. Peabody
arc owners of stock to the amount of
about half a million in the Alaska
Steamship Company and both have
been endeavoring lo sell their interest
in that corporation to the Morgan-
Guggenheim syndicate.

why cumberoth it thc ground?"
But A. R. Barrow who contrary to

Aid. Pattullo Congratulates Missing
Member for Skeena
Alderman Vernor Smith was ui.an-
imously elected to act as Mayor during
the absence of Mayor Manson at
Victoria. He expressed his appreciation
of the honor done him. Alderman
Pattullo regretted that the Mayor had
to leave the council so soon. He did
not feel with Alderman Hilditch that
Mayor Manson would not be missed for
a month or two, and hoped that in his
capacity as member for fikcenn district
the Mayor would have a propitious
time at Victoria.

the Einht Hour Bill, when it came before the British Columbia Legislature. That

Cutting Off the Legal Department
No one at all conversant with municipal usage will waste any sympathy on
the cily solicitors whose services were dispensed wilh al last night's council. Both
are young men with academic distinctions, who are already marked out for bigger
things than city eolicitorahipe. It will always redound to their credit that they
had oilirjnifd in the most arduois and most important year of I'rince Rupert's
hiatory, and for a somewhat meagre salary had kept it out of legal troubles. They
can probably make more of both money and fame in accepting actions against the
city ihan by accepting service under it.
The sypamthy must go to the city whose rulers have cut off its legal department. The writer of thc ancient Provarba declared that in a multitude of eoun-
x*l|ir.a there i-- safety. Experience, so far at least as legal counsellors are concerned,
does not bear out the proverb-maker. It is more than likely that the city will
lind it u very expensive matter, leading to much litigation, to accept heterogenous
legal advice*
This i> not 1 h<* worst as|iect of the case. Following on the lopping off of the
Prudhomme license, the action of last night's council, despite all protestations
to ihe contrary, will be accepted as evidence that Prince Rupert has passed into
the control ol a party machine. The public may reserve any sympathy they may
Ih- tempted lo offer ihe cily solicitors. |l can be more fittingly bestowed on them-

A statute of New Hampshire, prohib-
than $5,000 annually and one of Massachusetts, forbidding more than $2,000
annually, are the basis of thc opinion
which was written by Prof. Taylor,
formerly minister to Spain. According
by the residuary clause is "null and
void," the opinion says.
The object of making this large bequest to the church is said to be that
prior to the making by Mrs. Eddy
! of her will, on September 13. 1910, she

Interesting Computation Made by
Well-known Canadian Mining Geologist New Methods of Mining
Are Likely to Increase the Report.
"The World's Gold Supply" was tho
subject of a paper read recently before
the Canadian Institute in Toronto
by Mr. J. B. Tyrell, who gave a briif
sketch ot the history of the production
and use of gold from the earliest ages
to the present.
During all the ages, Mr. Tyrell
said, the total amount of gold produced would not exceed 25,000 tuns
in weight, and could all be put in a
cube 117 feet square. The value of
the gold at present in circulation in
thc world had been estimated at $1,-
Owing to the new and cheaper process of extracting gold. Mr. Tyrell
said, it was probable that many of
the old worn out placer mints would
be reworked profitably. Ontario seemed
at last, he said, likely to l>e a gold-
producing country.
Sir Kdmund Walker in proposing
a vote of thanks to Mr. Tyrrell pointed
the fact that gold was not only a measure
of value, but was the basis of all trade.
Every dollar's worth of gold, he said,
represent! d ten dollars' worth of credit
in the world's market.
In the Event of Canada lnaisting

Melbourne, Jan. 19.���Sir James Mills,
head of the Union Steamship Company
of New Zealand, has arrived lure and
interviewed the cabinet regarding the
tenders for the Canadian-Australian steamship service. After the conference
the cabinet ministers made it known
that the government would not continue its subsidy to the service if the
proposed call at Auckland, its favored
by Canada, was included.
It was agreed, however, that negotiations with the Canadian Government
should lie reopened, and in this circumstance the advocates of the claims of
New Zealand profess to find soma
ground for hope.

How the Vocabulary Grows
It was the third Lord Spencer who in
days gone by added a word to the
language in consequence of a wager.
The bet was that by cutting off the
tail part of his overcoat he could bring
into fashion overcoats so short that
the skirts of the undercoat would show
beneath. He won his wager, and
"Spencer" became the name both of
that garment and of the feminine one
afterward constructed in its likeness.
The peerage has added more than one
name to the terminology of costume.
Everybody knows "Wellingtons," and
thc billycock hat is said by some to be
really "Billy Coke," from Coke of
Norfolk, Earl of Leicester. But none
of these examples in the sphere of clothes
rivals what the Earl of Sandwich did
when he contrived the slice of meat
between bread as a device to enable
him to go on gambling without leaving
oil for a meal.
